Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder in which the immune system of genetically predisposed people mounts an attack in response to gluten, a protein found in grains and products made from grains such as processed foods, medicines, and cosmetics. This immune system response results in destruction that an affect multiple body systems. Left untreated, celiac disease can result in serious systemic complications by injuring the small intestine and reducing its ability to absorb nutrients.
One time, the damage may escalate to skin rashes, lactose intolerance, infertility, bone weakness, and nerve damage. Recognition of the oral manifestations of celiac disease may be the key to discovering this devastating disease in patients whose symptoms are less evident. In this course you will become familiar with the various signs and symptoms that may be pointing to this serious systemic illness. Helping patients understand that they may have gluten-related disorders could be the key to a lifetime of improved health.
- Discover the cause, extent, and consequences of celiac disease
- Identify sources of gluten and how gluten affects sensitive individuals
- Understand other possible causes of gluten sensitivity
- Recognize the oral manifestations of celiac disease
Kathryn Gilliam, BA, RDH, FAAOSH, incorporates the latest scientific research on oral – systemic links into practical clinical protocols. Kathryn’s interest in the medical side of dentistry led her to years of advanced study, including twice graduating from the prestigious Bale Doneen Preceptorship for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention. In 2018, she earned a fellowship of the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health. Kathryn has been on the front lines of early detection of oral cancer throughout her career and serves as the Director of Education of the Oral Cancer Cause. Kathryn coaches dental teams to elevate their standard of care with protocols based on sound scientific principles.

Dysbiosis often is found in the G.I. tract, and is often a core reason for patients health issues. Consequences of dysbiosis may have far reaching effects beyond the GI tract, as biofilms and endotoxins from pathogens can cause a cascade of inflammation and systemic complications.
Botanical medicine has been shown effective against biofilms, including those commonly found in the oral cavity. In this webinar, Dr Wisniewski covers research and clinical applications of botanicals and nutritional medicine.
- SIBO - causes and treatment
- Inflammation and Pain from Leaky Gut
- Restoring GI Balance with Botanicals
- Spore Forming Probiotics - Advantages and Indications
- Oral Health and the Relationship to GI Dysbiosis
Dr. Brett Wisniewski attended Monmouth University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with concentrated studies in chemistry. He has always gravitated towards the study of the human body and natural health, and furthered his studies at Palmer College Chiropractic where he graduated Cum Laude, with a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. He then attended the University of Florida where he completed his master's degree in molecular cell biology with a concentration in immunology. Dr. Brett also holds diplomates from the American Board of Chiropractic Internists (DABCI) and the American Board of Clinical Nutrition (DACBN). Dr. Brett is both an instructor and administrator for multiple DABCI programs across the country and holds a seat on the executive board for the American Board of Clinical Nutrition.

Your gut flora. Your resident microbiome. Your 100 trillion little friends that call you home. Microscopic, yet enough to make your skin crawl. Recently scientists are paying them more attention as they pull a lot of weight. When they’re happy – you feel great. When they’re annoyed you may not want to leave your home. In this session you’ll gain insights into our patients’ resident microbiome and learn five ways to support making the body - a place they (good bacteria) can thrive and our patients will enjoy optimal oral health & overall vitality.
- Gain insight into our patients’ gut flora and why scientists are so interested in uncovering its secrets
- Understand diverse gut flora that supports healthy immunity, emotions & well-being in our patients.
- Implement 7 simple daily habits to enjoy great guts, boundless energy & decreased inflammation

The epidemic of chronic diseases did not start overnight, but has its origin thousands of years ago. The first sign was the shift in the oral microbiome, but then the other “gateway” microbiomes would shortly follow. How did this all happen? What can we do to “save mankind”? Action is absolutely required as we have shifted the microbiome that co-speciated with homo sapiens over millions of years, and we haven’t a clue what direction we are now headed. Modern diseases that are epigenetically derived are now commonplace in children, such as, A.S.D, anxiety depression, I.B.D., obesity, diabetes, and allergies, creating a lifetime of illness. Modern medicine responded with numerous medications, all well-meaning, but all with their own specific set of side-effects. Oral health specialists should be at the fore-front of the battle to improve health. Fortunately, there is indeed hope, as new research, has determined where we once were, and where we have to find our way back to. This presentation concludes with all the newest in promising modalities to restore our health.
- The participant will learn how and when the epidemic of ‘”modern” disease started.
- The health status of our ancestors will discussed along with data concerning their health conditions. Learn that it is not just about the pathogens, but it is also about the commensals!
- Discover the modern health conditions, especially the epigenetically initiated diseases that have occurred due to the microbiome shifts. This will be documented for the attendee along with a timeline of events.
- Learn the concepts of future treatment modalities that will restore the health of our population.
